My recent book, Taming Globalization, argues that globalization presents profound challenges to the American constitutional order because it gives rise to international law and institutions that demand the transfer of sovereignty in response. Ted Carpenter of the CATO Institute posted a review at Liberty Fund's new website, here.
While generally favorable, Carpenter criticizes the book for its slight mention of the Bricker Amendment and for being too favorable toward presidential interpretation of treaties and international law (as opposed to the courts).
I think Ricochet readers will find interesting both disagreements, but in particular the Bricker Amendment, which was an effort to amend the Constitution to prevent treaties from having any legal effect within the United States. It failed by only one vote in the Senate. Although Bricker was from the Midwest, I argue that the Amendment was an effort by Southern senators (led by Lyndon Johnson, among others) to prevent human rights treaties from undermining segregation.
